Zico believes that Vinicius cant be compared to Neymar

first_imgBrazilian legend Zico thinks that Vinicius is a very different player than Neymar, he doesn’t think people should be comparing them.Ever since Vinicius Junior started playing for Real Madrid this season, a lot of people have kept comparing him to Neymar but expert Brazilians like Zico don’t really see it.The “White Pele” offered an interview to Diario AS before the Club World Cup match between Real Madrid and Kashima Antlers, where he revealed that he has followed both players since they were little and Vinicius is way more generous in the game than Neymar himself.Zico doesn’t think that the 18-year old will score as many goals as the PSG star but that doesn’t mean that he thinks ‘Vinny’ is a bad player.Quite the opposite actually, Zico seemed hopeful that Vinicius will evolve into a world-class superstar throughout his career and Real Madrid is the ideal place where he can become one of the great Brazilian players alongside him and many more.But reaching that potential won’t be easy for Vinicius, he should honor the names of legendary Brazilians that have come before him and getting the blessing of one of the biggest names in his country’s football is no small feat.🎥 La entrevista de Zico para AS🗣 Habló sobre el Madrid, Vinicius, Pelé…— AS (@diarioas) December 19, 2018Arthur Antunes Coimbra ‘Zico’ is also a Flamengo product like Vinicius, he is considered the second biggest Brazilian player of all time after only Pele before Ronaldo came to the scene.During his career which was most prolific at Flamengo, Zico made a name for himself and was one of the leaders of the Brazilian squad that never could lift the World Cup in the eighties.However, that squad is fondly remembered for the beautiful football they played and how much the fans adored their players.Alongside Socrates, Zico became one of the most revered players in his country’s history and today he continues his career as a manager for Kashima Antlers from Japan.The manager wasn’t able to watch Vinicius play in the semifinals against Real Madrid, something that he regretted after the match.Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.The fact that both of them came from the same football academy is more than enough reason for Zico to be excited for the youngster’s future at Real Madrid, because Vinicius has the makings of a star and has the potential that not even Neymar had in the eyes of his fellow Flamengo product.Zico offered the interview before the match against Real Madrid, where he spoke about his adventures commenting Real Madrid matches, he also spoke about how much he likes Karim Benzema and how well the Frenchman got along with Cristiano Ronaldo.Zico was also one of the few fortunate people who could see Pele playing live, which is a privilege that very few people can have in their lifetime.But the main talk was Vinicius Junior and how far he can make it at Real Madrid: “I believe Vinicius has a great future ahead of him, he is a very skilled player,” said Zico during the interview.“It’s very difficult to find another player with his strength and ability, with his dribbling as well… but like any young player, he needs to improve the fundamentals of his game.”“Vinicius needs to improve his passing skills, his shooting skills. This kid is one of the biggest revelations in Brazilian football. I have followed all his career.”“I actually organize a competition in Brazil where we take Japanese U15 squads to play there, I’ve been doing this for the last 21 years.”“The biggest clubs from Rio, Sao Paulo, and Japan are the ones that compete. Both Vinicius and Paqueta played this tournament, they all played.”“Those kids are freaks of nature. Vinicius is not an attacking player like Neymar, he doesn’t score as many goals, he likes to create the chances better,” he concluded.Bora ser feliz!

Most recently, we transitioned to a new IT platform. There was a delay in some of the benefit payments, and the outcry it caused was indicative of how the economy is doing. I have had persons come up to me and tell me that that was their only source of revenue, and if we miss one payment it affects them tremendously.  That tells me that our economy is really, really bad.”It was also shared that the cut in interest rate by the Central Bank will have an adverse effect on the investment portfolio of the NIB, explained Mackey-Knowles.   “About 65 per cent of my portfolio is currently invested in government debt,” she said. “Whenever there is a reduction in interest rates it affects my portfolio and your future benefits because we are tied to Prime.”Photo credit: Nassau Gaurdian#MagneticMediaNews#BahamasNIB#joblessclaimsup#workforcegrowthdown Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

JAMAICA Community access points being retrofitted with solar panels

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, November 8, 2017 – Montego Bay – Minister of Science, Energy and Technology, Dr. the Hon. Andrew Wheatley, says Community Access Points (CAP) across the island are being retrofitted with solar panels in order to make them more energy-efficient.  He said the objective is to ensure that the overall operation of these sites “is as cost-effective as possible”.Dr. Wheatley informed that he had commissioned an audit of all the CAP sites, and “one of the things we immediately found out was that the electricity costs to maintain these centres were alarmingly high”.“That’s when I realised we had to find a cheaper way to bring those (expenses) down,” he said, noting that cost is one of the greatest obstacles to Internet access in most countries.Dr. Wheatley was addressing teachers and students at the opening of the Mayfield All-Age School Community Resource Centre in St. Elizabeth on November 1.   The project, which was undertaken by the Universal Access Fund (UAF) at a cost of $4,617,310, will serve as a CAP site. A $3,261,210 centre was also opened at the neighbouring Top Hill Primary on the day.   A total of 257 CAP sites have been established across the island by the UAF.The Minister said through the CAP project, communities no longer have to worry about information and communications technology (ICT) access and affordability.“We are breaking down the barriers. Many people in these communities cannot afford computers, and, as a result, may be digitally illiterate. With the establishment of these CAP sites, we are seeking to change that situation,” he noted.Dr. Wheatley said the Government believes that every single Jamaican is entitled to access the benefits of the Internet.   “That, essentially, is why we are here today.   We see universal access as one of the paths to growth, and it is for this Government a national priority,” he pointed out.“We want all Jamaicans – young, old and in-between – to be able to access the Internet, to use ICT to learn more, find easier ways to do things, and, most of all, to better their lives,” he added.Dr. Wheatley noted, further, that “when we establish a Community Access Point, it is not just about facilitating your ability to read your e-mail.   It is not just about being able to do research for your homework, check your Facebook page, or simply to browse the Internet.   When we establish a CAP site, it is also about using ICT to find a path to prosperity.   As Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook (pointed out) during a speech at the United Nations (UN) in 2015, Internet access is the key to ending extreme poverty”.

CARPHA Certified as First Pharmaceutical Lab in Jamaica

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items: #Jamaica, December 29, 2017 – Kingston – The Caribbean Public Health Agency-Drug Testing Laboratory in Jamaica (CARPHA-DTL) has been certified by the Jamaica National Agency for Accreditation (JANAAC), as the first pharmaceutical laboratory in the island.   Accreditation of CARPHA for laboratory testing and calibration techniques is in compliance with the ISO 17025 standard, and marks a significant endorsement of the agency’s capabilities to test the quality of pharmaceutical finished products in order to ensure safe and consistent care of patients.   These products include capsules, tablets, creams, ointments, suspensions, syrups, and lotions.The JANAAC certification will allow the agency to act as the gatekeeper to test and prevent illegal/counterfeit prescriptions, drug, medicines and other pharmaceuticals being circulated in Jamaica and the wider region.   As the single regional public health agency for the Caribbean, CARPHA’s international accreditation for laboratory testing will mean that access to healthcare and essential quality medicines/pharmaceutical products will be improved and be of greater standard. This is critical for the Caribbean population’s well-being and optimal health.CARPHA’S Executive Director, Dr. C. James Hospedales, says the agency stands to benefit greatly from the certification, which, he notes, distinguishes it from other pharmaceutical quality-control facilities.   He says the agency plays a critical role in providing valuable information that informs decision-making and influences policy across the region in order to strengthen health systems, thereby promoting healthy lives and well-being.Dr. Hospedales, who was speaking at the accreditation ceremony held recently at the lab’s Hope Gardens offices in St. Andrew, says that the initiative aligns with CARICOM’s strategy of advancing initiatives for health and wellness by ensuring access to safe, reliable medicines.   He notes that member States will have access to data to undertake evidence-based approaches to enable early warning, risk reduction and management of national public health risks.He says, further, that the accreditation can advance health tourism in Jamaica. “The future of health tourism is real, and Jamaica, through CARPHA, can be the forerunners in the region in this arena,” the Executive Director says.Meanwhile, Dr. Hospedales informs that CARPHA will be introducing a new surveillance programme in 2018.   This, he informs, will allow the laboratory to monitor medicines such as those used for the control of non-communicable diseases (NCDs).Chairman of the JANAAC Accreditation Council, Simon Roberts, says the entity is pleased to celebrate the achievement with CARPHA.“The accreditation certificate signifies that you’ve not only received recognition from JANAAC but (also), by extension, the signatories to the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation Mutual Recognition Arrangement (ILAC MRA),” he notes.He explains that ILAC MRA provides “significant technical underpinning to the calibration, testing, medical testing and inspection results of the accredited conformity assessment bodies, and, in turn, delivers confidence in the acceptance of results”.   This supports the provision of local or national services such as safe food and clean drinking water, energy, and delivering healthcare and social care.Mr. Roberts adds that the endorsement from the governing body puts Jamaica and CARPHA well on the international radar of healthcare.“In addition, the ILAC MRA enhances the acceptance of products across national borders.   By removing the need for additional calibration, testing, medical testing and/or inspection of imports and exports, technical barriers to trade are reduced.   In this way, the ILAC MRA promotes international trade, and the free-trade goal of ‘accredited once, accepted everywhere’ can be realized.  This offers potential for the growth of the commerce industry,” he points out.He is urging the CARPHA team to “seek to expand the scope of tests at your earliest to ensure that the other unaccredited tests will enjoy the same approval”.Others commending CARPHA include Director of the National Public Health Laboratory (NPHL), Professor John Lindo; and Technical Officer for Accreditation, CARICOM Regional Organisation for Standards and Quality (CROSQ), Stephen Farquharson.JANAAC was incorporated in 2007 as the National Accreditation Body of Jamaica, offering services to the country and the entire Caribbean region.The only internationally recognized accreditation body in the English-speaking Caribbean, it is a full member of the Inter-American Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC) and ILAC.   The entity has signed multilateral arrangements with the IAAC and MRAs with the ILAC that allow for international acceptance of the results from JANAAC-accredited laboratories to the ISO/(International Electrotechnical Commission) IEC 17025 standard for testing labs, and the ISO 15189 standard for medical labs.It supports the effective development of the Jamaican economy by providing Conformity Assessment Bodies, such as testing laboratories with internationally recognized accreditation services, thereby fostering global confidence and facilitating trade between Jamaica and its regional and international partners.By: Peta Gay Rowe (JIS)center_img Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more
